Street Photography A First Look

I never knew the street was such a magical place. It was not until I saw the documentary Finding Vivian Maier that I decided to try my hand at photographing moments "out in the wild" of people I have never met. Maier's photos are so beautiful and have a graceful ease that I greatly admire. It is much harder than it seems to capture a moment like this. The funny thing is I am starting to see more and more of these moments happening right in front of me. I just had to become aware and pay attention. I can see that speed and anticipating situations are just a couple of things I need to work on as this journey plays out. As for now, I am getting more exercise than normal, testing some old film cameras, and meeting some interesting people.
